The Canadian Parvasi MISSISSAUGA: The ban on the entry of Indian diplomats in Ontario gurdwaras figured in the Indian parliament on Thursday even as some top gurdwara leaders have denied their involvement in it. The decision to ban Indian diplomats from gurdwaras was taken at a meeting at the Jot Parkash Gurdwara in Brampton on December 31. Congress MP Ravneet Singh Bittu, who drew the Indian government’s attention to the ban during zero hour in the Lok sabha, said some `Khalistani elements’ in Canada were trying to malign the image of the entire Sikh community with their actions. Bittu was quoted as saying that the “Government of India and state government of Punjab will not tolerate this,’’ warning these 'elements‘ to expect no help from India. Gobinder Singh Randhawa, president of Ontario Sikhs and Gurdwara Council, said, ``I had no information about the issue. I read it only in the papers.’’ Amarjeet Mann of the Ontario Gurdwaras Committee, who was present the meeting where the ban decision was taken, told Parvasi that they have called a meeting at Malton gurdwara on Saturday to discuss the issue. The ban statement carried no signature from either the Ontario Sikhs and Gurdwara Council or the Ontario Gurdwara Committee which represent most gurdwaras in Ontario.

His name was Harbans Lal who is today known as Bhai Harbans Lal or Dr Harbans Lal. "Yes, I was the first and only Sehajdhari president of the AISSF,’’ says Dallas-based Dr Harbans Lal, 87, who retired as chairman of department of pharmacology & neuroscience at University of North Texas Health Science Center. Dr Lal is known for organizing global conferences on the Guru Granth and has written for Sikh Review of Kolkata, Journal of Sikh Studies of GNDU and Sikh Sansar started by 'Father of fiber optics’ Dr Narinder Singh Kapany in San Francisco.

Brown visited the Golden Temple in Amritsar on Wednesday and paid obeisance at the holiest Sikh shrine. He also served langar to the devotees. Posting his pictures of the visit to the Golden Temple on Instagram, Brown said, "Began my India trip by visiting the Harmandir Sahib, the spiritual home of Sikhs, to receive blessings for a great 2018. I have visited the holy Sikh shrine 8 times and witnessing the beauty of this place of prayer and devotion has always been blissful and humbling. I was also grateful to have the opportunity to join sevadars and serve langar to the devotees.’’ In New Delhi, the Ontario PC leader also met with former Indian cricket team captain Kapil Dev. After the meeting, Brown wrote on Instagram, "Great sit down with former @ IndianCricketTeam Captain and icon Kapil Dev.
